TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The government shutdown delayed the release of September unemployment numbers, but now there is a better idea of those statistics as the jobless rate comes out this week. 

The unemployment rate did not change too much, it is holding at 7.2 percent, with August numbers at 7.3 percent according to the Bureau of Labor statistics.   In September the government agency reported employment increased in construction, wholesale trade and transportation.
